"I can give you what you want."

The new Intel commercial has a really catchy song in it. I searched the only lyrics that were in the commercial (it's short) and found the group that the song is by. Here are the lyrics from the commercial:

"I can give you what you want
I can make your heart beat short
I can make you ice cream
We could be a sweet team..."

Recognize it now? It's by a group called the New Young Pony Club from the UK, and it's called Ice Cream. Here's the video for the song, but I couldn't find a video of the Intel commercial online. Let me know if you have more luck, I'll link to it.

It's a great song for a commercial because it demands attention, but I have to confess that I didn't remember the brand associated with it until I looked it up. So I guess the commercial as a whole isn't that effective. They need a better balance- get a song that's good, but not so good that it overshadows the product.

Hey, sorry to be random, but if you're still looking for the commercial, it's here. I'm not sure if you searched for it with lyrics, but it's "sweet" and not "sweat," so that might help :-).

Thanks Mary! I just now saw that mistake too, good catch.
